How is everyone today--you all must be busy, cause not to many have new posts tonight--and only one comment on my posts for the last two days????? I know I am way way behind in everything--but I shall continue to work on catching up and this new roadrunner program is going to help me with that challenge!!!!

My to-do list is mighty long right now and it is hard to decide what project, or household job to do first----so I am trying to do alittle of both--today, I did get one of my embroidery patterns traced--it is for 6 small stockings--somethings I can embroider when I am too tired to do anything else or too stressed out to do anything else!!!!!

Went to another garage sale today--it was within walking distance and went they are close by, you go even if you really don't need anything else--found a few treasures for $7.00--nothing was marked--you just made on offer.

Here is some pictures of the "new" living room--so far:
Here is a look at the new curtain treatments I did to the windows--notice the cocko clock above the top of the window--then we added some of my pictures and counted cross stitch sampler --I really like it--oh and these are the lace curtains that I got for only $1.00 at that sale --remember????? And the stained glass window I got at a garage sale on Saturday for $2.00!!

This picture shows the new rocker that I got at the SPCA thrift store and behind it is the new--old music stand i got at the Church sale--also notice on the floor the blue and white duck--that is a gift from my sister-in-law, Val will they where here.
AND here is my new desk/computer area--my printer is on a stand under the quilt--I make the quilt--also the baskets are the new blue ones I got at the same shop as the new/old table that I am using for a desk!!!
This is to my right on the opposite wall and holds my blue and white now--I use the dresser for office storage and scrap booking supplies for that "one of these days projects---oops maybe I should change that to one of these "years" projects!!!"
Here is the underground railroad quilt I have shown before, but I finally have some wall space to hang is up--I just love it here between the two rockers---now these two rockers are old ones to me--the one on the left was my Mom's and the one on the right is one I got 7 years ago for $5.00, it is my stitching chair--it is a glider rocker and there is a footstool with it--don't know what I would do without it???? Both of these are going to be recovered soon--that's on the to-do list--went to the Quilt shop today and got fabric for mom's rocker and for my footstool--and I just ordered the fabric for my rocker from tonight(yes--I did order some other fabric too--just alittle!!!
And here is a picture of one of the new lamps I got at a sale on Saturday--this one cost me $10.00, but was well worth it--as it gives off a lot of light at night so I can see to sew in my rocker!!

I am so excited to night my "cut" and "Paste" buttons are working now---YES, YES, YES,--it makes life so much easier!!!

My brother, Jim and his wife, Valarie made it safely back to Tampa, FL last night--I miss them all ready--thanks for praying for their trip back.

Well that;s it for tonight blogging friends--but I have lots of pictures to show and to take for you to show you in the coming days--so be sure to return to this "station" soon!!!!

Smiles, hugs, just, Di
